Rosewood hosted the 24th installment of Wayne County’s longest-running individual wrestling invitational on Saturday.

300 grapplers competed for 14 individual titles, and the championship belt — which resembles those worn by pro boxers and wrestlers — was also up for grabs.

As usual, the Eagles had a strong showing at the USAF Eagle Invitational with 10 placers. One wrestler won gold, two won silver and three wrestlers won bronze medals.

Jason Kennedy (113 lbs) took gold. TJ Ruffino (120 lbs), Sebastian Blea (126 lbs), Logan Tortual (132 lbs), Giovani Rivera (145 lbs). Ryan Deloach (170 lbs), Tyler Parrish (195 lbs), and Matthew Wade (285 lbs) all won silver medals.

Brothers Gavin Davis (138 lbs) and Kaleb Davis (160 lbs) both won bronze medals.

As a team, Rosewood came in second place, Laney wound up in first and has now won three invitationals in a row, Panther Creek took third place and Holly Springs finished in fourth place.

Eastern Wayne and Southern Wayne also had wrestlers compete in the invitational.
